I'm now moved to Saudi Arabia and having great fun (not!) trying to
download those cool files that are being currently shared by the group.
Pitiful download rates and 'YouSendIt' is blocked by the Saudi fire
wall while 'RapidShare' isn't! - Go figure!
Here's my little anecdote I thought I'd share - I was flying via KLM
from a connection I made in Amsterdam to Dammam in Saudi Arabia. Just
before we came in to land I was reading through Ken Garners great Peel
Sessions book when the Dutch stewardess commented that 'oh - you like
your music don't you - I saw you reading Mojo magazine earlier and now
you're reading about John Peel'!
It turns out that she was a bit of a music fan herself and told me
that the Dutch used to tune in to Peel regularly also! She didn't tell
me which station so I guess it was Radio Bremen.
How strange eh? The poor old sods dead yet still bringing people
together - candidate for a sainthood perhaps? (chortle!).
